Since you haven't really changed much, there is none. However, you would still have to purge your HPO system, that could take as little as 30 minutes or much longer if it is slow to purge. Your transmission and VGT will go through a learning cycle. The VGT and PCM will not take very long, but the transmission may flare for a while on shifts. It should all be happy within a hour or 2, but it could take longer.

What he said. There is no break in like for new rings etc. once everything goes through its relearn from the power being disconnected and the HPOS work out any air left in the system you are good to go.

Of course from the title he could have meant:

It takes about 5 seconds with a small hammer to break the door lock and pull the opening wire with your finger. If you have the ignition/steering wheel breaker, another 5-10 seconds. The longest part is waiting for the glow-plug start light to go out. Crank it over and its broken in and gone in less than 60 seconds!

No, you should have 0 boost unless it is under load. Even if you rev'd it up to 2500 rpm or higher you shouldn't get any boost. Also, since you just put it on, it will take a few seconds or minute to lube up, heat up and spin for the first time. After a while you can expect to see 0.1 - 0.2 psi at idle. Of course, with your exhaust leak it doesn't help to get any boost showing at low load.

Where is the leak? Most of the problems happen at the turbo to Y-pipe connection. Some times it looks close enough, but it has to be seated or it will leak. As you probably already know, it may have been a PITA to line it up the first time with all that room to work back there.

Did you forget to hook up the MAP sensor line that goes from the upper firewall on the passenger side above the evaporator housing down to the intake manifold on the passenger side to a copper barbed fitting sticking straight up?
